Bring your dogs and family to Menlo Park’s 4th Annual Paws for Paws

Posted on August 5, 2019 at 12:51 pm by Peter Ibrahim

On Saturday, August 24, 2019, Menlo Park’s 4th Annual Paws for Paws will be held at Burgess Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bring your furry four-legged friends and family members and enjoy a day filled with activities and raffles. Attendees are invited to browse local pet vendors while their four-legged friends are spoiled with samples of dog treats. There will be K9 demonstrations by Menlo Park’s canines and their handlers.

This is a free, family, pet-friendly event that includes face painting and activities for children as well as food trucks. Our Facebook sponsored Kid Zone will feature a bounce house, arts and crafts, and laser tattoos! Veterinarians and pet vendors will be on hand to answer questions. 

Additional highlights include:
  • Free first aid instruction
  • Photo opportunities
  • K-9 meet and greet
  • A vintage police vehicle

The event benefits the Menlo Park Police Foundation, the Menlo Park Police Department K9 Unit, and a portion of the proceeds go to Operation Freedom Paws. This is a great event for the whole family, whether you bring a dog or not! It is completely free to attend, but donations of any amount are greatly appreciated.
